XCMG boom lifts, from its recently-launched series’, are playing an important role in a range of major construction projects in China.
The manufacturer’s new articulating boom series is working at the Marine Industrial Park in the Shenzhen Shantou cooperation zone, which will become a major coastal development to include a new seaport business district and a coastal eco-tourism area. It will incorporate 50.9km of coastline, 1152 square kilometers of sea and 13km of continuous beach and other marine resources.
Another project, the Shenzhen East power plant, covers an area of 54,3000 square meters, with a total investment of about RMB 4.395 billion. It has a capacity of 5,000 tonnes of domestic waste per day, with an annual power generation capacity of about 600 million kWh. XCMG provided several telescopic boom lifts from its new XG series for the project, including the XGS58, designed for the global market.
The manufacturer is also playing a significant role in landmark projects globally, such as the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Chengdu Universiade, the Xi’an National Games, and the Hangzhou Asian Games.
Large numbers of XG series MEWPs are involved in the projects, which also includes the Urumqi Olympic Sports Center, which has a construction area of 30,5000 square meters and a total investment of RMB3.8 billion. Incorporating a park, business and residential areas, it will host international events, exhibitions and large-scale artistic performances. More than ten XCMG aerial platforms were used to carry out the external curtain wall installation.
